NotesNews: Welfare State Proposed. Dec. 1. Britain's blueprint for post-war social security - what is already being referred to as the Welfare State - was revealed today in the Beveridge Report. The plan, designed by Sir William Beveridge and now being examined by the Government, is aimed at bringing the entire adult population into a comprehensive, compulsory insurance scheme, giving protection against sickness, unemployment, old age and support for families. It is hailed as a charter for social security from the cradle to the grave, and is based on the principle of universal flat-rate contributions and benefits... The report acknowledges that a completely new structure of administration will be needed and it recommends the Government establish a Ministry of Social Security to handle it.
